Bandai Namco Entertainment revealed the first TV commercial for Ace Combat 7 in Japan. As usual with most of the game commercials there, it’s quite short, but you can still feel your adrenaline pumping when watching it.
As previously announced, Ace Combat 7 will include a port of Ace Combat 5 as a pre-order bonus for PS4, while the Xbox One version will get Ace Combat 6 as a pre-order bonus.
The latest trailer for the game focused on aircraft customization, which includes a similar system to skill trees in RPGs. There’s also the trailer showing the game’s VR mode, which might make Ace Combat 7 the best VR aircraft piloting game we’ll ever get in years. Then, there’s the latest gameplay, showing the game’s mission 06 and 07. You can also read our recent interview on the game with producer Kazutoki Kono.
It feels a bit weird the game is finally coming, as it was delayed multiple times since its initial announcement in May 2015. It’s definitely one of the games I’m looking forward to the most in 2019.
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown will release on January 18th for PS4 and Xbox One, and on February 1st for PC through Steam. If you’re planning to get the game, you could pre-order the PS4 version through Amazon here.
